“Comfort, Comfort My People” Isaiah 40:1-11 Monday, July 13, 2020
“Comfort, comfort my people, says your God” (Isaiah 40:1). This is good news in the midst of the bad news of a turbulent world. God’s people will find out just how good this news is as God will bring a supernatural rescue through a Persian king by the name of Cyrus. This is a prophetic hint that was given 500 years before God brought in HIS King: the King of kings, Jesus Christ. Jesus will rescue anyone who will bow to him as Lord. In a few verses later in that passage in Isaiah we will come upon another prophetic promise: “He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; and gently leads those that have young” (Isaiah 40:11). May this Good Shepherd be ever closer to all of us at this very time in all our lives.
